"Wildcat Victory" is Kansas State University's official fight song.[1] It was written in 1927[2] by Harry E. Erickson, when the school was still known as Kansas State Agricultural College. In addition to this song, the Kansas State University Marching Band also commonly plays "Wabash Cannonball" as an alternate fight song.[3] John Philip Sousa's "Kansas Wildcat March," written for the school, is Kansas State's official march.

On occasion, "Wildcat Victory" may be played for notable alumnus of Kansas State University by other bands.[4]


The lyrics to "Wildcat Victory" are:

Fight, you K-State Wildcats
For Alma Mater fight-fight-fight!
Glory in the combat
For the purple and the white.

Faithful to our colors
We shall ever be,
Fighting ever fighting for a
Wildcat victory!

Go State!
